There was this little girl sitting ....
« on: March 07, 2019, 12:53:44 PM »

There was this little girl sitting on the English side of the English Channel, bawling her eyes out. This pigeon was flying over and spotted her, so the pigeon flew down and asked what was wrong.
The little girl told the pigeon that she wanted to be a ballet dancer more than anything, but the only way she could be a ballet dancer was to get to France, being really the only place that teaches ballet. After thinking for a moment, the pigeon told the little girl to wait and he would return. About an hour went by, then the kindly pigeon returned with 30 of his mates, they all had ropes hanging out of their beaks, and on the end of the ropes was a raft.

The pigeon told the little girl to jump on the raft, and they would take her across to France.

About halfway across the Channel, a storm blew up and the ropes broke. Despite the pigeons' best efforts, the raft sank, and sadly- the little girl drowned.

The moral of this story is: you can’t be a ballet dancer if you're pigeon towed.
